Marcelo Bielsa’s Marseille will be overwhelming favourites on Sunday evening as they travel to Northern strugglers Lens to round-off the Ligue 1 weekend.
OM felt hard done by when they drew against Lyon seven days ago and felt they should have had three points when a late Lucas Ocampos effort was wrongly ruled out by the officials.
However, with OL losing to Nice on Saturday, Marseille could cut the gap between themselves and second place to just one point with victory over 19th-place Lens. That would also leave them within two points of leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
The home side, however, have motivation of their own. Victory for Toulouse over Girondins de Bordeaux on Saturday means that Les Sang et Or have fallen seven points behind the team directly ahead of them.
Failure to pick up points from Marseille and safety begins to look ever further away.
